The Supremes Meets The Beatles!
It's no secret The Beatles loved Motown. Among the Motown hits the Fab Four covered are the Marvelettes' 'Please Mr Postman', the Miracles' "You've Really Got A Hold On Me" and Barrett Strong's "Money (That's What I Want)". Here, those glam girls of soul, The Supremes, cover the Beatles! This track was originally featured on The Supremes' "A Bit Of Liverpool", an album worth of British Invasion covers. I'd really like to hear their covers of "World Without Love" and "Because", so if anyone has those tracks, do let me know.
The Supremes - You Can't Do That
While "A Bit Of Liverpool" is long out of print, the track above is also found on "Motown Meets The Beatles", a collection of 17 Beatles covers by Motown artists. CD available, here.
